Ascent Trip Report

I couldn’t find much helpful info for this peak so studied TOPO maps and tried the east ridge. Road is ok for 4x4 as there are some deep ditches. I headed straight up the ridge and ran into thick brush for several hundred feet elevation. On the return I headed down through open forest, much better! Take the north track to avoid that brush at the start. Ridge is half ok and half brushy, lots of rhododendrons. A couple of buttresses posed little problems.
